Oppressive government is more desirable than no government.

jackh4mm3r

This is a "Lincoln-Douglas" debate; each opponent must have a value and criterion, followed by contentions. Round One is for acceptance and declaring which side you would like to debate: 'oppressive government' or 'no government.' Please excuse the side debate.org has declared I am; it would not let me proceed with the debate without picking a side. Round Two is for opening arguments only. Round Three is for rebuttals and strengthening your case. Next, Round 4 consists of more rebuttals. And fin...

Gun Free Zone on College Campus

Trig314
jpl951

I am currently an enrolled student, and also have a license to carry a concealed handgun in public. To be more specific about my position on this, I believe that it is wrong for Public Colleges/Universities to not offer any kind of process in which an individual may gain legal rights to carry a concealed handgun on campus when he/she goes to class. Of course, I also welcome faculty/teachers/staff to be allowed that offer as well. It's not just for the students. I do agree that we should not just...

Does good and evil exist?/Examining scenarios to prove statement

Kai_Piranha
FMAlchemist

This is my first debate, and I decided to start with the topic of whether good and evil exist, using a certain scenario as a jumping point. I am arguing that good and evil do exist. The scenario that I would like to present is the following: If I was talking to someone about something trivial and then suddenly took a gun and shot the person in the head because I felt like it (and for no other reason; the conversation had nothing to do with it), this would be considered evil because I woul...

Obama should be impeached

keepstompinsuh
Boesball

Obama simply has to be the worst president the United states has ever seen, Clinton and Nixon were both impeached for lying, but don't we as humans all make mistakes? Looking at Obama, we see he has driven the economy in the dirt even after we thought it couldn't get any worse after George W. Bush's reign. Wouldn't it seem logical to impeach a president that has thrown this country into a massive recession, and given the USA a bad name? I strongly believe there should be a ballot immediately for...

Origin of the universe are religious

roland54
Gandalf-Ofek

Claims to explain origins/beginnings with nothing or infinity are insubstantial. Are religious explanations any more precise? A solar system in 7 days can just as be contradicted. Other creation accounts are less precise. What can we trust? The laws of nature seem reliable, but have we measured accurately? Scientific explanations of beginnings- eg big bang theory, oscillating theory- can contradict each other, therefore there is a need for narrowing. Religious explanations contradict both scien...
